    Loving my OB Blackbox and high torque servos on my custom 80/20 framed 48"x48"x8" milling router. Very exciting day, did some engraving and managed to cut my first piece that I designed up in Fusion 360.

    BUT there is a problem, or lack of knowledge on my part.

    I am a moderate to "slightly" advanced CAD designer with a few years of Fusion360 under my belt. Not too much I couldn't design with it.... I'd usually print or pass the 3D files on to those I designed for and never had to venture into the CAM end of things, which brings me to today.

    I was hopeful that F360 would output the G CODE in a form that would be ready for my Blackbox and Grbl...

    Yes, F360 does offer two flavors of Grbl g-code, but both seem to give me errors when using OB controller and software.

    Where can I look to learn, what I have to be aware of in Fusion CAM such that it will spit out code ready to run on OB?

    Thank you very much for your valued advice.

    Bob
